CONNECTING
THE BIKE
AND RIDER.


Gloves are a critical interface between rider and bike. SHIMANO applies the same System Engineering methodology used to develop our braking and control systems to designing and crafting our gloves. This unique perspective ensures we incorporate the right 3D Anatomic design with the correct material and padding for every type of rider and every type of ride.


DIRECT FEEL

Each one of our glove models was designed with the unique requirements of its intended usage in mind. The goal: to minimize the gap between rider and bike for a more natural riding experience.

JOINTLESS BRAKE HOOD

Seamless brake hood panels bring your hands closer to the shifters, providing more comfortable and natural control.

STRATEGIC PALM CONSTRUCTION

Palm thickness and materials are tailored to the demands of each riding style.


BIKE CONTROL

We have expanded our FLEXION FREE concept to improve bike control for a wider range of riders. Our new FLEXION FREE comfort concept provides the same stable closure system and wide wrist opening as our FLEXION FREE race, but with the added flexibility and wrist motion suitable for longer, more casual rides.
